Abstract

My creative project is a series of eight paintings along with photo and video projections that investigate the architecture of downtown Ellensburg. Historically, Ellensburg was a cross roads for fur trappers, cowboys, missionaries, miners, and Native Americans. Today, Ellensburg is still a dynamic community and a meeting ground for diverse groups of people. Architecture is one way in which people are able to leave marks of an earlier time while finding a space for community interactions. I am interested in the architecture of downtown Ellensburg a historical landmark a well a space for observing human relationships and community today. The body of work will be a reference to the buildings of Ellensburg and the history that they represent in combination with the contemporary image of the city that is created through architectural spaces. The project is funded through the C Farrell Research Grant. I am honored to have had this opportunity for historical research while investigating traditional and contemporary methods in art.
